HOW TO RUN ERRANDS EFFICIENTLY

HOW TO RUN ERRANDS EFFICIENTLY

Would you agree that weekends should be for fun and play with our kids and not for chores and errands? I agree 100%

WHAT I DO FOR SELF-CARE

WHAT I DO FOR SELF-CARE

Every mom with more experience than you will tell you "me time" is absolutely necessary.

I never really had "me time" before Grace was born because I was never really one to pamper myself. I always had a job and a side business so that didn't leave a lot of time for anything else. At the most, I would get a hair cut at the beginning of wedding season and a pedicure if I had planned in advance to wear sandals when working a wedding. (Rarely the case.)
